If  you travel, here is some good information about hooking up with wifi on your trips...

Pal Trish sent this "southern joke". LOL ....  Bubba was driving down a back road in South Carolina when he saw a sign in front of a restaurant. It read:
Lobster Tail and Beer
"Lord have mercy!" he exclaimed to himself, "them's my three favorites!"
Yesterday vacuuming and mopping. The joy. Back was SCREAMING! Gawd, I need a housekeeper!!!!
Then later I picked up PJ and Dave and took them to pick up their new motorhome. It is 17 years old but I don't think the former owners used it at all. The interior, kitchen included, is spotless and still smells new. Even the cutting board is still wrapped in factory cellophane! It is really nice!!! SUPER nice!!! 

                  Dave and PJ will be the King and Queen of the road in this! 
Dinner was reruns of my crab/pasta/veggie dinner. Chair .. TV.. news, wine, nap!
Football tonight:

National Cherries Jubilee Day

National Cherries Jubilee Day will make cherry lovers jubilant. If you enjoy cherries, you must absolutely love this day.
Cherries Jubilee is easy to make. All you need is a can of cherry pie filling, some cognac (or brandy) and vanilla ice cream.
1 can cherry pie filling
3 tbsp. brandy
Vanilla ice cream

Heat cherry pie filling and brandy. Spoon over vanilla ice cream.
I also like this dish with a piece of pound cake under the ice cream!
